This is just a random thought I had earlier tonight and it actually makes somewhat sense. Gimme a few minutes, and you'll understand why I think
these pictures of soldiers abusing Iraqi's is actually a win-win situation.
To start off, let's take the Iraqi's. They obviously strongly hate Americans already.
Now take Americans. A majority of the people in this country dislike Iraqi's. Not just Iraqi's, but anyone that looks like a terrorist. It's a
sad prejudice, but it's here.
Now here's where the pictures kick in. We have pictures of soldiers abusing Iraqi's. The Iraqi's see these pictures and are furious and demand
retribution. So what we do is send these guys to court, and slowly but surely play this whole thing out of the media; kinda like what we did with
capturing Osama. Anyone else notice how the whole "we must capture Osama" thing was slowly let go until we all forgot about it? So, now we are
making the Iraqi's happy because they think "ya these soldiers hurt our men, and now the American government will punish them.. maybe the
American's aren't that bad after all."
Now comes the Americans. The people that see these pictures see our soldiers pissing on the Iraqi. American's don't like terrorist anyways, so why
would they think it's a bad thing? If anything, they like the idea. After all, these guys were trying to kill our soldiers. So if anything this
boosts morale; we're getting revenge for our fallen soldiers. Those soldiers go on with their lives, none the different.
So as you see, everyone wins. Iraqi's get their retribution, and Americans get their morale boost.
